Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner has been accused of sexual harassment  by former show writer Kater Gordon.

Gordon and Weiner, who received an Emmy award for Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series, worked together on the show. 

Now Kater alleges to The Information that the producer made an inappropriate comment towards her. 

After working late into the night on the show, Gordon claims:

'He told me that I owed it to him to let him see me naked.'

'I knew immediately when he crossed the boundary that it was wrong,' she told The Information.

'But I didn't know then what my options were.'

A press representative for Weiner released a statement on his behalf, saying:

'Mr. Weiner spent eight to ten hours a day writing dialogue aloud with Miss Gordon, who started on ‘Mad Men’ as his writers assistant.'

'He does not remember saying this comment nor does it reflect a comment he would say to any colleague.'



Beth Behrs is used to playing an unlucky in love 30-something in 2 Broke Girls, but in real life she's found her perfect match.

The 30-year-old took to Insatgram to share gorgeous pictures from their engagement party.

She captioned the collage of photos: "6 years down a lifetime to go! #love."

Once the news of the engagement broke, Beth’s co-star Kat Dennings sent a little message of love on Instagram.


Thank you also to my beautiful friends and family! Can't wait to celebrate!#love

She wrote: "MY BABY'S GETTING MARRIED!!!!! Congratulations you two beautiful kids I can't wait to celebrate when you get home #Beth&Michael #FORLYFE.” 

Aw! We wish them all the best.


What a great surprise for one of our favourite stars. Alexis Bledel – a.k.a Rory Gilmore – is reportedly pregnant with her first child. 

According to Celebuzz, the actress and her husband Vincent Kartheiser, who plays Pete Campbell in Mad Men, are expecting a baby. 

A source told the website that they are "very happy about the news" but "they don't want a lot of people to know."

The couple married in a very private ceremony last year, so it's no surprise they want to keep their news a secret.

"Only close friends and family know about the baby. [Vincent} is trying to keep it quiet," said the source. 

The two met over three years when Alexis guest-starred in a few episodes of Mad Men, where she seduced Vincent's character in the show. 


This is an interesting revelation!

Following his long overdue Emmy win this week, Jon Hamm is set to guest star on SpongeBob Squarepants. Talk about an unexpected yet totally great move!

Cheekily referring to his iconic Mad Men character Don Draper, E! News has learned that Jon will voice a character named Don Grouper on the hit animated Nickelodeon series, who is described as the charismatic head ad executive of the ad agency, Grouper, Goby & Koi.

We're intrigued!

In the episode that is set to air next year, Mrs. Krabs will go to Don, who has a sharp mind and captivating charm, for help when she attempts to launch a new line of frozen Krabby Patties.

After being nominated eight times for his work as Don Draper on Mad Men, Hamm finally took home the Emmy Award for the final season of the series. 

We can't wait to see this episode now. It will sure be an interesting one!


Now this was a red carpet to remember!

Big time red carpet events have been scrutinised of late for their rather boring and obvious fashion sense – but last night's Emmy Awards certainly turned the style game up a notch. 

Never have we seen so many innovative, daring and risky-yet-classy choices from our favourite stars on TV. 

From well established labels to never-before-mentioned designers, here's a look at our top ten looks:

Kerry Washington

This metallic dot lace number from Marc Jacobs was a brilliant choice for Kerry. Extravagant yet elegant, her look is a top player for us. 


Laura Prepon

Laura looked like she was a Grecian Queen last night in this Christian Siriano number. Her black hair contrasted with the red and gold beautifully. She was certainly dressed to kill. 


Claire Danes

The pencil-thin, slick-sequined stripes combined with heavy chain detail straps was an unconventional choice for Claire, yet we love this Prada number on her so much.


Kiernan Shipka

This Dior combination is odd, but dreamy. The delicately embroidered, lavishly gilded top with black pencil trousers is a refreshing take for the young Hollywood star. Will Kiernan be out next style crush?


Sophie Turner

Game of Thrones actress, Sophie went for sophisticated-cool last night. With mostly all attendees wearing dresses, we love this Galvan jumpsuit with a blue velvet top.  


Sofia Vergara

Hugging her in all the right places, Sofia looked like an old Hollywood movie star last night. The Saint John number was the perfect combination of sexy yet classy. 


Taraji P. Henson

We're obsessed with Taraji's custom Alexander Wang dress. Detailing a little transparency through the skirt and a keyhole cut-out with chain straps – it sent us to style heaven. 


Uzo Aduba

Uzo won an Emmy last night and to collect her award she graced the stage in a pink (and fabulous) Jonathan Cohen gown. This is definitely one for innovation and we love the grey detail across her waist. Very art deco.


Danielle Brooks

Another OITNB actress wowed on the red carpet last night. Danielle shined like the sun in this Christian Siriano number. Top marks for jumping out of the safe colour zones. 


Sarah Hyland

Sarah wore a Zac Posen dress last night ans we're crushing on the autumn colour. She styled it perfectly with a short, choppy hair do' and matching jewellery. Brownie points for the same colour nails!


After 18 years together and months of speculation it has been confirmed that John Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt has broken up.

The pair released a statement on Monday that confirmed the rumours of their separation but did not provide any details of why they were breaking up.

'With great sadness, we have decided to separate, after 18 years of love and shared history,' the couple said in the joint statement. 

'We will continue to be supportive of each other in every way possible moving forward.”

44-year old John and 45-year old Jennifer who is both an actress and screenwriter have been together since 1997; they never married and have no children together.

In April of this year the pair were hit by rumours of their relationship ending when John entered a rehab facility for alcoholism. The news, originally reported by TMZ, was confirmed by the pair’s publicist before the final season Mad Men aired in the U.S

In the past John has admitted that playing the role of troubled Don Draper has taken a toll on him mentally:

“People ask, 'What's the difference between you and Don?' Look, I drink, I get drunk. I'm not immune to that.

'And (creator) Matt (Weiner) will tell you, the darkness in Don has not abated,” he told Variety earlier this year.

He added that while he loved his work and his co-stars, “it can be hard on you as a person.”



Mad Men and Bridesmaids actor Jon Hamm has reportedly completed a 30-day stint in rehab for alcohol addiction.

The star checked himself into the Silver Hill treatment centre in Connecticut last month, and has recently returned home after completing the four week programme.

A spokesperson for Jon confirmed the news to gossip site TMZ, saying the actor would like the issue to be treated with sensitivity by the media,

"With the support of his longtime partner Jennifer Westfeldt, Jon Hamm recently completed treatment for his struggle with alcohol addiction. They have asked for privacy and sensitivity going forward," said the rep.

Since leaving rehab Jon has made a number of promotional appearances for Mad Men, including an event earlier this week to unveil a Don Draper tribute bench in New York. 

The actor has previously spoken about the dark time he went through following his father's death when Jon was just 20. "I struggled with chronic depression. I was in bad shape," he revealed in an interview in 2010. "But I was very fortunate to have really good friends in my life whose parents sort of rallied."

The final series of Mad Men begins next month. Jon also currently appears on the Netflix series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

We wish him all the best with his recovery. 



Mad Men actress January Jones never looks anything less than impeccable on screen or on the red carpet… but it wasn't always that way!

The star was obviously rooting through some old photo albums at home, as she decided to share a couple of throwback snaps from her awkward teenage years.

We are in LOVE with this snap of the star at the Miss Teen South Dakota Pageant way back when… those are some seriously puffy sleeves.

Of course, even as a lanky teen January was still ten thousand times more put together than we ever were at that age, but by God that dress is hilarious!

The photo, posted over the weekend, was captioned, "In honor of the all the pretty ladies getting dolled up for the SAG awards tonight I'm sharing my favorite red carpet look from my archives.#missteensouthdakotapageant#itstillconfusesmethatididntwin #bitter"

The star, who celebrated her 37th birthday earlier this month, also shared another sliightly more toned-down snap of her teenage modelling years:

We prefer the red dress and matching heels, tbh! She'd totally make a mint if she auctioned them off…



Mad Men actor, Bryan Batt is officially a married man!

The actor, who plays Salvatore Romano in the hit show tied the knot to his partner of 25 years, Tom Cianfichi on 28th September last.

Bryan, who also starred in 12 Years a Slave, told US Weekly: “After 25 years together we tied the knot. First legally in New York, and then in a ceremony and reception under the canopy of oaks in a beautiful Garden District courtyard in New Orleans.”

Some of the Mad Men cast also joined in the festivities, with Christina Hendricks and her husband, Geoffrey Arend being in attendance.

The wedding was almost a washout, the actor described, but was saved at the last minute: “At 4pm Weather.com reported 100 per cent chance of rain between 6 and 10 [so] we looked to the heavens and asked our late moms to do whatever they could [and] at 5.30pm I checked the report again, and [there was]zero per cent chance of rain – it was beautiful!”

Byran also tweeted his delight, writing: "Last week, after 25 years, Tom and I were married. It was beautiful, profound, and more magical that I ever dreamed. I highly recommend it!"

It sounds like the couple had a wonderful day – congratulations!



Hollywood couple, Alexis Bledel and Vincent Kartheiser are married.

The 32-year-old actress, and 35-year-old Mad Men star, got married back in June in a secret ceremony.

Vincent first met the Gilmore Girl star during her stint on Mad Men.

The couple wanted to keep their relationship private initially, and didn’t begin dating until season 5 of Mad Men wrapped.

"We were completely professional. We never saw each other out. We never—it was nothing, it was just work."

They began dating in 2012, and got engaged a year later.

Reports have also revealed, that some of Vincent's Mad Men co-stars, attended the ceremony as well.

Congrats to the happy couple!

She’s one of the most beautiful actresses in Hollywood, but January Jones wanted to prove she was just like everyone else growing up.

The 36-year-old Mad Men actress posted a picture of herself as a kid to her Instagram account and gave her fans a giggle.

Posing next to a kitten, she wrote: ‘#tbt can’t think of a caption, sorta self explanatory isn’t it? #finallythecatthatgoeswiththehouse.’

Lately, January has been filming Good Kill alongside Ethan Hawke and Zoe Kravitz.

The thriller, which is due out in 2015, follows a family man who wrestles with his conscience when he begins to feel uncomfortable about his job as a drone pilot.
